Do you have some time to sit down and do another Thanksgiving craft this week? It’s hard to believe that Thanksgiving is already on Thursday, isn’t it? It feels so early this year! We took a few minutes today to make this adorable thanksgiving turkey wreath craft. It’s not too hard and doesn’t take much time either. We didn’t have anything on our front door yet, so I just used some strong packing tape on the back of it and taped it to the door. It looks festive for the rest of the week! Plus the kids are so excited to have had a part in the door decor! Now…hopefully it doesn’t rain too hard! 🙂
- Construction Paper in Fall colors
- Paper Plate
- Cut a wreath form out of the paper plate by folding it in half and cutting the circle out of the middle of it.
- Cut strips from your construction paper.
- Make loops out of the paper strips and glue them to the wreath.
- Next, trace around a child’s foot and cut it out. This will be the turkey’s head.
- Cut out a beak and a waddle for the turkey’s face. Glue it onto the foot cutout and draw on two circle eyes with a black marker.
- Cut 2 yellow strips of paper and fold it accordion style to make the legs. Glue them to the bottom of the “head”
- We also made little feet and glued them on to the ends of the legs.
- Once all that is dry, glue your turkey head to the wreath form with all the loops. You will want to attach the top and the bottom so that it doesn’t go sagging off and looking crazy.
- Now you’re finished! Hang it up and enjoy!
